More than 30 years ago, a small group of innovators led by renowned nephrologist Dr. Dana Shires made a commitment to save lives through organ and tissue donation. LifeLink Foundation was born. What was once a small, non-profit organization with big dreams and just a few employees is now much larger. LifeLink has more than 500 full- and part-time staff in west-central Florida, Georgia and Puerto Rico who fulfill the life-saving dreams of waiting transplant recipients through the generosity of organ and tissue donors.

LifeLink Foundation is made up of five divisions: LifeLink of Florida, LifeLink of Georgia, LifeLink of Puerto Rico, LifeLink Transplantation Immunology Laboratory and LifeLink Tissue Bank.
